Aquapark boom

THE FIRST two aquaparks in Slovakia, both located in the High Tatras mountain region, will open to visitors on July 1. The Aquapark Tatralandia, three kilometres from the city of Liptovský Mikuláš, and the Aquapark Poprad are two of six aquaparks currently under construction in the country.
Tatralandia is equipped with six pools filled with water from thermal springs, six water slides, a three-lane speed slide, and other water attractions such as aqua volleyball and an artificial climbing wall. The green, 146-metre long Anaconda is the longest water slide in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, and the blue Kamikadze is the steepest. The area will also stage live concerts and open-air movies.
Aquapark Poprad, will not be open completely on July 1, but visitors can enjoy the centre's four pools (two indoor, two outdoor), hydro-massages, and artificial waves. Bigger attractions, like sporting grounds and a shopping mall, will be added next year.
